See the post as reply to Patick's comment. You won't notice it in
tc because it doesn't output complete trees.

Sounds good, I've been mostly occupied by writing a API documentation
to libnl and clean it up which almost doubled its usefulnes. There
is still some effort to go into the core to make it easier to use for
applications needing non blocking sockets or weird multiplexing.
The traffic control part is slowly evoling but it take some more time
to implement all the remaining qdiscs and classifiers. A bit of luck
allowed me to provide a XML based external interface to other
applications. It should be easy to extend it to make it bidirectional
and get distributed configuration via some kind of existing or
new protocol. The most problematic issue remaining is byte ordering.
I guess I will end up having all the modules define their part of
the grammar specifying the required byte order of every field and
have a generic parser to do transformations as necessary.
